Hi ! To All The Ladies Of Hive....

in Ladies of Hive2 years ago (edited)

Hi Everybody !

This is my intro and I had no idea what to put here. I am 63 and live in North Carolina in the USA. So many years, so many things to choose from, so I'll just pick a few and you'll see more as we go along.

I still work a 40 hour week and currently, since covid, I work at home. I am in billing A/R for an international company. It's not extremely exciting, but it pays decent enough to cover my needs AND a few wants. 🙂

I've been married twice, divorced twice. Both ex's are deceased..... and no, I didn't kill either one of them....LOLOLOL !!!!

Currently my favorite hobby is painting colorful abstract art. You'll see more about that later, I'm just sure of it.

I was born 3rd child of 5 into a wonderful family. My Dad is no longer here with us and my older brother isn't either, but the rest of us are plodding along this journey called life as best we can. I was very lucky about this.

I don't have any children of my own, but I have 11 nieces and nephews and at least 11 great nieces and nephews (so far), so our family line should carry on nicely, no thanks to me !

I love my family and that is one thing that makes me maddest at covid..... is that I can't hug them right now or get together in our big family group if we are going to be careful with each other......I'm missing that and the sooner it is over, the happier I will be. Until then, I'm trying to make the best of everything I can.

My family is also full of good cooks! A great fortune being born in the south. My grandmothers, Aunts, Mother and now sisters and some nieces.... all good cooks. Me too ! Baking has been my forte, but I can cook about anything. For a few years, before I was on my own, I baked cakes and things for other people from my home. Now THAT was a job I really loved.

I've been on my own 22 years. Although I would have loved to have had a great partner to grow old with and wouldn't claim being single is the best way to go, I will say, that I come home to a peaceful house and there's a lot to be said for that.

For now I surround myself with things that make me smile and help out wherever I can.

More of my life drivel later.

I'm glad to be here.

Luv ya !

I must admit to being confused; I've "known you" here for some while now.
Why the intro now? It's cool though; you got my U&R 😄

Hi Jerry,

Some other ladies started a community called "Ladies of Hive".....so I posted it there, but it goes everywhere, so also fell in my normal stream. They requested we all do an intro post for the fun of it to start us getting to know each other a little. 🙂

Hello @jacey.boldart!

I so enjoyed reading your article. You have a fun way of introducing yourself, I was chuckling 😅 the entire time while reading your introduction. And this one... "I've been married twice, divorced twice. Both ex's are deceased..... and no, I didn't kill either one of them".. this seriously cracked-me-up 🤣😂!!!

WOW, what beautiful and appetizing cupcakes 😋. You are a kitchen diva, my friend ! Too bad we don't live close to each other.. I'd be making all sorts of excuses to drop by your home around meal time 😜!

It is great to know you, and I hope to get to know you better through your articles, my friend!

Have a wonderful week ahead, and take care 🥰🌺🤙

Thank you !

I know life doesn't allow it all the time, but I still try to insist that everything be fun. Having a big sense of humor is a great asset for handling life I think.

I love baking, but don't do as much of it now as I use too. Everybody around me it seems is trying to eat more healthy ! How dare they !?

I'm looking forward to learning more about you as well.

I was off today as the Labor Day holiday and I took next Friday off, so I only have a 3 day work week ahead. THAT is going to make it a pretty good week.

Hope your week is a pleasant one too. Stay safe !

DRIVEL?!!! Hardly!

Look at that gorgeous photo of your family! So stylin’ and of the era. Glad to hear you aren’t responsible for the demise of your exes! 😄

Welcome to the Ladies of Hive!

Of the Era..... for sure ! What a FUN childhood we had !

I know, prison wouldn't have suited me, so I just left. LOLOLOLOL

Thanks ! Glad to be here.

Welcome to the Ladies of Hive!

Being a baker would be an awesome job!

Ladies of Hive is a cool idea.

Baking is a great job if you are the boss and are free to be creative in your own way.

I thought it was a cool idea too !

What a great intro post you wrote. Glad to meet you here. And look forward to see more of your posts. Greetings from the Netherlands.

Thank you !

I look forward to getting to know more about everyone too !

I'm happy to have you here with us @jacey.boldart there is nothing trivial about a family that stays together.

A perfect #LadiesofHive intro post and I am so glad you joined the Community and are finding your way around in the Discord, too!
I miss your family, too, and look forward to your posts when you can all celebrate being together again!

My older sister and I are already fretting over how we are going to get through Christmas ! Funny huh?

Covid is totally evil.

😃

My d-i-l is worrying about how we are going to get together for Thanksgiving. You simply cannot eat turkey with a mask on!

Nope ! You sure can't !!

Thanks for sharing your experience with us!

11 nieces and nephew and 11 great ones!!! Wow that would be a massive family gathering, must be awesome when you get together!

It is ! ..... and we love it !

Wowzer!! Look at those cakes!!

I believe, if we have a support group like family and friends, we'd be okay...
Look forward to more of your drivel :)

I think so too !

I have plenty more drivel to share. 😄
